This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter of semi-abstract landscapes and ambiguous scenes with figures, John Hultberg studied at Fresno State College (B.A. 1943), with Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still at the San Francisco School of Art (1947-49), and at the Art Students League (1949-1951).

In 1952 he was a part of a show of new talent at MOMA and in 1955 was awarded first prize at the Corcoran Biennial.

He was a member of the National Academy of Design; he taught painting at the Art Students League and the San Francisco Art Institute.

Biography from Anita Shapolsky Gallery:
John Hultberg was born in Berkeley, California in 1922.  He studied at the California School of Fine Arts with Clay Spohn, Richard Diebenkorn, David Park, Clyfford Still and Mark Rothko.

Hultberg made his mark with dramatic, often dark, landscapes and interiors interspersed with recognizable imagery and grounded by an obvious horizon line.  His paintings and prints take viewers through a vortex into compartmentalized apocalyptic and alien lands (often inhabited by demons or otherworldly beings), where occasional uncluttered expanses create windows into the unknown.

His works were very prophetic, with pollution and environment issues.

Hulberg's works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Museum of Modern Art, New York City; Albright Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York; Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois, and the University of Arizona.
